government Bimetircs Strategy. TL:DR

We are the Home Office (actually we are small cabal of people within the HO and other govt departments)

We are collecting as much of your biometric data as possible.

We will keep it as long as we can (permanently if possible)

We will use it in any way we can think of. We'll try to not let it get stolen, but we're not bothered if it is.

Data fetishism.

It's not a sane policy. It's a personality disorder
